Where Do My Membership Fees Go?

24. May 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Ever wonder where your membership fees go? While some critics argue that the money RussianLoveMatch charges for chat and live video streaming goes straight to employees’ bank accounts (or to the ladies themselves) this simply isn’t the case. Though we are a business and must earn a profit to remain viable, a large portion of membership fees we collect go to meeting a wide range of operating costs; costs that are necessary to provide the level of service our customers have come to expect.

The majority of Russian women do not speak English fluently and therefore need the help of skilled interpreters. These trained professionals translate emails between Russian women and Western gentlemen and help ladies find the right words to express their feelings. Needless to say, we compensate translators for their time and expertise, at a significant expense, and unlike many Russian dating sites we don’t charge per word or per email. RussianLoveMatch also helps introduction agencies with the cost of computers, web cams, and Internet, all things Russian ladies need to chat and flirt with foreign suitors.

In addition, also employs a full-time staff of customer service professionals in the United States. These professionals are available seven days a week to answer questions and address member concerns. Without them, many gentlemen would be lost. IT professionals, graphic designers, administrative support staff, and marketing specialists, among others, are also critical to the success of RussianLoveMatch. This, of course, means salaries, health insurance benefits, payroll taxes, not to mention a place to conduct business.

Despite critics’ claims, RussianLoveMatch does not keep every dollar we collect. Far from it. Though we do have the right (and need) to earn a profit, a large portion of gentlemens' membership fees goes to providing them with a safe, comfortable, and fun Russian dating experience.
